The Great Yonder is an event in a fairytale-like location, where artists have the freedom to make the music they want to make, and where guests can enjoy nature and a sense of space. A holiday-festival experience with a maximum of 250 visitors and readings by inspiring speakers. But also qi gong and yoga classes, games and activities, good food and quality Hungarian wines and beers. 

The spot

It all takes place in Bedepuszta: Village Retreat. This authentic village has been renovated and is turned into a holiday retreat. It's located at the end of a dead-end road in a beautiful valley, where you can walk through forests and fields for hours, without seeing any buildings or meeting any people. Because of the small scale of the event ( a maximum of 250 guests) and the spacious area, it's relatively easy to adapt to requirements needed in the context of the corona virus, would this be necessary. Still Bedepuszta is more than an idyllic place, it’s also an ecological and cultural project, with The Great Yonder being the kick off.

More about the place


Musicians from various bands and genres come together to make music on the stage, on top of a hill or under a apple tree. Furthermore there is yoga, there are workshops, the sauna is working and the swimming pool is open. Also inspiring speakers are invited and excursions will take place. For children there's a swimming pool and a Folk Fair. In the kitchen we cook with local products and the best Hungarian wines and beers will be served at the bar.

More about the stay

Do you want to be there?

A remote village in the Hungarian Carpathians may sound far away, but the travel time from Budapest is only one hour. Pick-up busses drive from Budapest Airport from the 10th and the 11th and back on the 15th. Tickets include a 4 day program (11-14 August), 4 days breakfast (12-15 August) and 5 days of camping (10-15 August) and cost 280 euros. Camping is allowed from 11 August 3 pm. We want to keep The Great Yonder small and personal, so the number of tickets is limited to 250.
